WAKE ME UP: Slow to Rise

By Megan Lazovick

Thanks to the Country Radio Seminar commissioned study “Wake Me Up,” Edison Research has been able to provide new tidbits about the morning habits of Americans.

So far we know how many Americans are “morning people”,  when people wake up and what wakes them.  But what do they DO once they’re awake?  The overwhelming majority of people, surprisingly, stay in bed.








And not only do they stay in bed – they stay in bed for a while.
